Haven't been active in a few weeks due to some pipe making / knife making and other crafts; figured I'd share a little. First pipe was a commission for a brother here on bob and is on the way to him ; the second one is availble.  Commissioned is a wolfgang wasp inspired shape. Didn't pull it off exactly but it was my first time tackling a shape like that. Second one I am going for a light bing crosby-esque billiard with a long green cumberland stem.

Nice work Ian. That first pipe is very unique and I love the shank design & accent! And the green Cumberland stem on the billiard really sets it off. Well done bro!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Nicely done Ian. Very nice. Love the contrasts on the first rather unique looking piece and the billiard looks superb with its stem. Bravo!

The billiard looks perfectly shaped and I like the way the stem ads a little bit of color/flair to the classic shape.Both pipes look great, and that axe looks like it has some character to it too. Very nice.

Here is some cleaner pics of the billiard. It has a few cosmetic flaws but is still a pretty piece.

A billiard is probably the hardest pipe to replicate/carve and I think you
hit it right on the head sir, not to mention your stem work looks impeccable. Few new pipes to show. Double12 Few new pipes to show. Full-m10

Cool

I saw these on FB, but I'll comment here:

...billiards are simple yet hard as f*ck to turn out, and turn out right. If that's your first, holy crap, you're up-and-away talented. Ditto to the stem work.

Can I just give you my block stummels and have you carve them for me? Laughing No clue when I'm ever, if ever, gonna try my hand at pipe making again. (...I shouldn't say that...)

Cool

Thanks guys. Kyle these where both from predrill kits and were my 3rd and 4th hand cut stems. Lots of fun cutting stem but very time consuming. It's my second billiard attempt, a few months back I did the non traditional billiard with the plateau top.

Glad you guys like it, need to get a drill press soon and start drilling my own blocks and rods so I can cut down on my per pipe cost. pirat

Yeah, those are both really nice pipes, but the billiard is very impressive Ian! cheers cheers cheers

I checked out the pics, before I took time to read the thread. I thought to myself, if he can carve out those 2 pipes with nothing but a long handled axe, I bet he could churn out a heck of a cigar indian! Shocked
